Lévy Gorvy exhibition of the remarkable Italian avant-garde artist opens in New York.

“Self-taught artist”, “prolific career spanning seven decades”, “radical artistic practice”—there are many keywords you could apply to Carol Rama, but why narrowing down the perception of this artist? Lévy Gorvy gallery organizes an extraordinary exhibition, putting the work of renowned Italian artist in the context of exhibitions she visited, the artists she was in conversation with, and the formal and conceptual concerns she encountered in the efforts of her contemporaries.

On view from January 24th through March 23rd, the exhibition showcases a selection of Rama’s early figurative watercolors, which were censored in her first solo exhibition, as well as later works like the ones from intense Bricolage series. Curated by an art history Flavia Frigeri, the exhibition puts Rama’s art into greater focus in the broader context of Turin’s cultural scene.

“自学成才的艺术家”、“七十多年的职业多产生涯”、“激进的艺术实践”——你可以用很多关键词来形容Carol Rama,但为什么要缩小对这位艺术家的认识呢?Lévy Gorvy画廊举办了一场非凡的展览,将这位意大利著名艺术家的作品与她所参观的展览、与之交谈的艺术家以及她在同时代人的努力中遇到的正式和概念性问题结合起来。

展览从1月24日持续到3月23日,展出了 Rama早期的水彩画选集,这些水彩画在她的第一个个展中受到了审查,同时展出的还有后来的作品,比如Bricolage系列。该展览由艺术史学家Flavia Frigeri策展,它将Rama的艺术置于 Turin文化场景的更大背景下,使其受到更大的关注。
